Robotic-Assisted Surgery Technology offered in Southwest Florida

We are proud to bring this cutting-edge technology to Southwest Florida, so our patients can get the care they need close to home. Robotic-assisted surgery is a huge benefit to our patients at Lee Health which means fewer patients will have to leave the region to get treatment. Learn about the different robots Lee Health has to offer!

Aquablation® Therapy

Aquablation therapy is a minimally invasive surgical treatment that can provide long-lasting symptom relief for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Aquablation therapy is the only procedure that uses a heat-free waterjet controlled by robotic technology for prostate tissue resection.

  • Aquablation therapy injection

    Aquablation® Therapy

    Aquablation® therapy by Procept Biorobotics is a minimally invasive surgical treatment that can help preserve a man’s sexual function by also providing long-lasting symptom relief for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Learn more here about Aquablation® therapy at in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Lehigh Acres.

da Vinci™ Surgical System

Lee Health’s robotic-assisted surgery program also features the da Vinci Xi and da Vinci SP Surgical System, which is designed to help surgeons perform minimally-invasive surgeries, such as colorectal surgeries and unique surgeries in the areas of gynecology, lung biopsy's, urology, ear nose and throat and general surgery.

ExcelsiusGPS® Robotic Navigation

The ExcelsiusGPS® is the world’s first revolutionary robotic navigation platform combining a rigid robotic arm and full navigation capabilities into one adaptable platform for accurate alignment in spine surgery.

  • Robotic surgery screen motnitoring

    ExcelsiusGPS® Robotic Navigation Platform

    The ExcelsiusGPS® robot is the world’s first technology to combine a robotic arm and full navigation capabilities for accurate alignment in spine surgery. Learn more here about the treatment options offered at Lee Health!

Ion Endoluminal System

Lee Health has added the Intuitive ION robotic-assisted bronchoscopy platform to its program. The robotic platform enables physicians to perform minimally-invasive lung biopsies on patients to help detect lung cancer sooner.

  • Surgeons preforming surgery

    Ion Endoluminal System

    Ion Endoluminal System from Intuitive provides minimally-invasive lung biopsies for patients to help detect lung cancer sooner. Lee Health provides robotic procedures in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Estero.

ROSA® Robotics

The ROSA® system utilizes a series of X-rays to generate 3D images of an individual’s unique anatomy. This 3D image enables the surgeon to design a personalized plan based on the specifics of an individual’s knee/hip anatomy prior to performing replacement surgery. 

  • Robotic surgery doctor

    ROSA® Robotics

    ROSA® Robotics is a multi-application platform that utilizes implants and data technologies to redefine robotics by providing real-time insights to optimize outcomes. Learn more here about the treatment options offered at Lee Health!

Frequently Asked Questions Related to Robotic Assisted Surgery

See frequently asked questions (FAQs) answered from our Lee Health expert surgeons.

Compared to traditional open surgery, Robotic Assisted Surgery allows the surgeon to control precision guided instruments during the procedure. The robot can move more precise compared to a human’s hand. These complex movements allow a high degree of dexterity for accurate surgery while in difficult sensitive points around the body. The benefits of robotic surgery may include shorter recovery time, significantly less pain, less blood loss and scarring, a faster return to normal activities and in many cases better clinical outcomes.

Robotic assisted surgery is when the surgeon operates the robot with a greater degree of accuracy and dexterity. This precision guided movements helps the patient experience less blood loss, scarring and faster return to normal daily activities.

The robot does not perform the operation without the control from the surgeon. The surgeon goes through extensive training to become familiarized with the robotic arms movements. The surgeon’s hands guide the robot’s arms during the surgery to precise movements inside the human body.

Lee Health’s surgeons control the da Vinci Surgical Robot at a console. From there, they’ll operate small instruments that move like their own hands but with significantly greater accuracy and precision. They see you and their actions through a vision system which delivers a clear 3D view of the surgical area that can be magnified to 10x what the human eye can see.

The advantages of robotic surgery may include shorter recovery time, significantly less pain, less blood loss and scarring, a faster return to normal activities and in many cases better clinical outcomes.

Recipients of robotic surgery have shortened hospital stays when compared to procedures done by hand. The accuracy of robotic surgery allows our doctors to make incisions as small as possible allowing you to return to normal daily activities faster. Of course, recovery times differ depending on the type of surgery you're receiving. If you’d like to know the average recovery time for your specific procedure, ask your surgeon!

A benefit of robotic surgery is that these procedures are minimally invasive and cause significantly less pain. They enable our expert surgeons to operate with such a high degree of accuracy that the size of incisions are minimized. Smaller cuts heal faster, so patients receiving robotic surgery will be in less pain overall.
